Cambridge Centre for Gallium Nitride


Last week, the PICO 2021 virtual conference has honoured the scientific careers of Sir Colin Humphreys and three other pioneers of transmission electron microscopy in solid state research and the life sciences. All four researchers gave insights into their achievements during invited talks.

More recent achievements by the Cambridge GaN group were presented by Prof. Rachel Oliver, Dr. Simon Fairclough, Dr. Fabien Massabuau.

Rachel delivered a talk on the defect structure and properties in cubic nitride materials (see latest publication), while Simon presented a poster on Al-alloyed SiN interlayers in AlN/Si, and Fabien talked about sequential plan-view TEM imaging of porous GaN.


We conduct world leading research into nitride based III-V semiconductors: material quality, characterisation and device development.

We are passionate about education and outreach! If you would like support for an education project then please .
